MTV, Patron of the Arts

According to Animal, “a salacious new video installation will give Times Square tourists something other than the Naked Cowboy to gawk at.” Chewing Color, a selection of video art curated by Marilyn Minter, will show films that “strike a delicate balance between beauty and disgust.”
The videos will air on MTV’s outdoor screen between 44th and 45th street in Times Square during the month of April.
More than 28 years ago, MTV helped give birth to a new video medium by showcasing music videos,” said Jeff Yapp, Executive Vice President, Program Enterprises, MTV Networks Music & Logo Group. “By working with Creative Time to bring video art to Times Square for a second year, we’re exposing millions of visitors who travel through the Cross Roads of the World to another group of amazing artists.”
